Review

Thanks to Game of Thrones sword and sandles are so hot right now. Hence the follow up to 300, the slew of Hercules movies and this show Vikings.

Unlike the aforementioned this opts for a more historical approach as opposed to fantasy but there are elements of mysticism thrown into the mix.

A decent show with plenty of variety to keep the viewer engaged and at times Travis Fimmel is mesmerizing. This will surely kick start his career and more substantial movie roles will be coming his way compared to what he’s had in the past. Just hope Hollywood don’t typecast him as they seem to have done with Kit Harrington from GOT.

Travis aside the supporting cast are great, stunning locations and attention to detail make it well worth a watch.

Not too shabby at all.
